Subject Re: I'm ready to give up on Open Office

Hello Bob,

I am just another user of Oo like you. Your letter shows me that you really
love Oo but, problems push you in that way that your are now disappointed.
And I had some bad experiences in my one business with Oo in the past, but
I learned one rule: If there is some bug and makes me problems, I just
install previous version. I now how that is frustrating to using an old
version of Oo! But, we both now that this is open source, there is no
enough developers, and bug fixes are not so fast as we want. Maybe for you
is solution to switch on other office package, but here is also an
alternative for you: go to Bugzilla, reported your problem, and see what
will be happens. I reported several bugs, and in reasonably period they are
fixed. So, if you want to help us and yourself, please feel you freely to
report issue, attached your example and describe in detail what is the
problem. That bug we cannot solve without you.

Best regards,
Wlada ( also one of users who really want to see  Oo  as much better,
faster, without bugs office software)
